LOL. That will soon get ignored.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Met my GC for the first time today. All looks good, the Coopers are on, tint to be done. No paint blemishes that I could see for now. 17km on the clock

Though there is a little ding on the chrome strip on the rear passenger side door. Looks like someone opened the door of another car onto it. So that was noted and will be replaced.

And I forgot to take photos.

Make sure it's a "no chewing gum zone". Once that's in the seat belt weave, your perfect new car is no longer perfect.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Gotta be quick because I'l going out for another drive.......what an awesome car. My first real drive of the CRD and I'm going to have to watch the points on my licence. I had to open the bonnet to prove to my friend it is a diesel!! I've put 100km on it already and can easily see another 50 or so tonight!!! I got it tinted this arvo, and will post up better pictures, but he has put an extra 35% over the privacy glass backs and rear, then tinted the fronts to match. The end result is perfect. Love everything about this car....certainly worth the 3 month wait!!. The satnav so far is excellent, database A1112 4.2.1 if that means anything? All the TSB flashes are complete. The dealer delivery/handover was perfect although he spent a little too long trying to set the seats for my wife... pfff, as if she's ever going to get a turn driving it. Anyway, heres a picture to be going on with...gotta go coz the engines running..................back in a day or so

Edit..Oh, and a big thank you to you guys from Oz for helping with the tracking and a massive thanks to Milous for the VIN, Build sheet, Tacking Database etc...This forum ROCKS!!!

We know exactly what you mean.

We've got a 300km loop trip through the south coast and the southern highlands planned for the sunday after we pick it up. Really looking forward to that now.
